Gang violence key issue in El Salvador vote

Salvadorians will elect a new president on Sunday, after a month where 31 bodies were found in 21 different locations.

    As Salvadorians head to the polls to elect a new president, gang violence is on voters' minds.

    In the past month, forensic scientists discovered 31 bodies in 21 different locations in one neighbourhood controlled by one gang.

    But investigations have stopped during the election.
